Watercolour Wonders Workshop with Carolyn Sheather








When you’re ready to explore the wonders of watercolour in Artist Journals…

Pencils, pens, and water soluble pencils are usually the first mediums we learn to manage in

our Journals but there comes a time when we desire what watercolour brings…

  • Areas of stunning colour without having to make every mark
  • A way to add Tonal values underneath other washes pencil lines
  • Combining it with already established penciled in areas to enhance effect
  • Loosely capture moments that mean something that can be refined later
  • The ability to create subtle, soft washes that seamlessly blend into the background
  • How to layer and apply multiple colours together
  • Colour options and solutions for building tonal values

Watch as I demonstrate ‘7 Ways to Succeed’… learn what to do and what not to do. Together we wander through the mistakes most beginners make when trying this as a new medium.







Learn how to create soft, subtle edges that merge into other colours or the background, discover why some colours behave differently to others and see what overworking really does.









Splash, blend, play, explore, experiment…

Sample wet in wet, wet on dry, working fast and slow, washes,

backwashes, mixing with other mediums and making mud.

Reveal some of the mysteries and magic of this delicate and

dynamic medium. See the tips and techniques and experience

the trials and triumphs…

Take away a toolbox of ideas for future reference!
